It’s the first shoot for Urban Portraits Dumfries project – and an exciting challenge. Moxie, the Herald at the Stove, responded to my open call for volunteer models and enlisted her family of 5 to be photographed after hours when most of High Street shops were closed.
We had a phone consultation a couple of days previously and she told me that one of their favourite family pastimes was reading and promised to bring a mystery bag of props with her. I thought this was a great idea because it opened ways for the family to express their creativity and individuality. On my part, for this session I was interested in presenting Dumfries as a living breathing family-friendly urban space, a sort of informal living room.
Back to the mystery bags of props – Moxie and Co brought a stack of books and a toy plastic tea set with them. The girls wore bright red polka-dot dresses with trainers and Nova looked dashing in his striped jacket calling for a clean monochrome urban palette. Then the books… The stark black and white exterior of Waterstones Dumfries bookstore seemed a perfect location.
I’ll show you what happened later with Moxie and Co and their toy tea set in the upcoming post. If you want to receive more information about Urban Portraits Dumfries project and follow its progress please click the button below and subscribe.
